I'm new to Idaho, having moved here from Washington in September. I am long overdue to write you about my top priority for the federal government: redirect funding from war and imperialism to nonviolence and education. As you know, the U.S. spends more on its military than the rest of the world combined; Congress and much of the American public is heavily influenced by the military industrial complex in their opinions, policy-making, and everyday lives. I think this should change, and I ask, beg, plead, that Senators and Congressmen lead the country away from its status as champion of violence and the peddling of military hardware.
Today, November 4, is a special day to many people who blog and are interested in true peace. It's called Blog Blast for Peace. Have a look here for more information: http://mimiwrites.blogspot.com/.
Also, I post my letters to Congress in my own blog, called Giant Triplets. As you may know, the term "Giant Triplets" was coined by Martin Luther King Jr. The triplets are: racism, militarism, and extreme materialism. Have a look here: http://gianttriplets.blogspot.com/.
